What is buccal fat removal?

Question:
What is buccal fat removal?

Answer:
Buccal fat removal is the removal of a fat pad in the middle of the cheek that can make a rounded face look a bit less round or create the impression of a dimple. This is a simple procedure that can be done under local anesthesia from an incision inside the mouth so it is totally hidden and there is minimal noticeable swelling after the procedure.
